The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) has begun the process of updating Ohio's long-range transportation plan, Access Ohio. The new plan, with a horizon year of 2040, will include a comprehensive inventory, forecast, and analysis of the trends and issues affecting transportation throughout Ohio. This plan will set the stage for ODOT transportation policies and investment strategies for the coming years. Access Ohio 2040 will be completed in 2013. The previous long range plan was completed in 2004, to view Access Ohio 2004-2030 click here.
The updated plan will include consideration of the following: all areas of the state, 2010 census data, trends in population changes, trends in freight movement, trends in economic development, recently completed ODOT plans, and financial resources available to execute the plan.
The updated plan will: inventory existing conditions of infrastructure for all modes of transportation, inventory ridership for all transit agencies, inventory existing crash data, inventory all major environmental assets, seek input from transportation stakeholders and the public, identify macro-corridors, project the future conditions of all ODOT-owned roads (pavement conditions, bridge conditions, demand and congestion), document potential impacts of climate variability on existing infrastructure, and demonstrate consistency with plans from metropolitan planning organizations.
